'The release of Jazzactuel reclaims from obscurity a remarkable period of avant-garde music. These oddball tracks reveal the period from 1969-1971 as a true renaissance of "out" music, to which Jazzactuel serves as a wonderful introduction. ' allmusic.com

CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED OVERVIEW OF FRENCH FREE JAZZ LABEL BYG ACTUEL

This 3CD boxed set presents the cream of the BYG Actuel catalogue. Covering the period 1969-1971 and comprising the best of its improv jazz, avant garde and psychedelic output, featured artists include Don Cherry, Sun Ra, Archie Shepp, Gong, Sunny Murray, Art Ensemble of Chicago and more. 

Absent from the reissue racks for the best part of a decade, the set was originally compiled and annotated by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, together with US music journalist Byron Coley. First released in 2000 to critical acclaim, this updated edition includes a 48-page booklet featuring newly sourced photographs and memorabilia all housed in an attractive clam box.
